One day back in 2003 I was walking around the meatpacking district in Manhattan and we wandered into the Chelsea Market. At the back, there was loud Tango music playing and dozens of couples were dancing. I snapped this with my old 35mm camera.

I think this photo right here sums up why I’d like to learn how to Tango.

  1. Hi Kevin,

    For some reason, you came to mind…so I Googled you. Hope you are well. I just had another baby a couple of weels ago, that makes two. Living on very little sleep… Send me an email some time and let me know how you are.

    Take care,


  2. Bonjour,

    Nous organisons un concert sur le thème du tango le samedi 4 juin.
    Dans le cadre de ce concert, nous aurions besoin d’affiches.
    En recherchant sur internet, nous avons trouvé votre image,
    Pourrions nous l’utiliser ce jour-ci ?

    Merci d’avance pour votre réponse

    Bien cordialement,

    Catherine Daparo

  3. Hi Kevin,

    Very nice photo. Congratulations!
    First of all, sorry about my English. I’m a graphic designer and a tango lover (amateur only). I’ve made an illustration inspired in your photo and I’d like to show my artwork in my facebook, beside the original photo with your name (and website link if you want). May I have permission?

    I look forward to your reply.
    Yours sincerely,

    Carmen (from Spain)

  4. Hi Kevin,

    This picture has really taken my breath away.

    We are forming a tango club at our university and we would love to use your picture in our posters and website to promote it. It just says all I want to say about tango, and it would mean a lot to us if you would let us use it.

    We will credit your work and link to your website as well.
    Please let me know if this is ok with you.

    Thank you and very nice work.
